Saurabh Chaudhary, Manu Bhagar and Abhishek Verma, as well as gunmen Divyansh Singh Banwar, Anjum Maudkil and Aishwarya Tomar are among the highest medalists after their performances in the World Round.
Both 19-year-old Chaudhry and Bagher are champions at the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympics in the men’s and women’s 10m air pistol events respectively.
Badminton player Busarla Venkata Sindhu, wrestlers Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Bogat and Ravi Tahiya, boxers Mary Kom and Amit Bangal and javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra have been offered the chance to feature in one of the three podium drawers.
But with Punia’s recent injury last week and training conditions unsuitable for Chopra, things will be a little more difficult for the South Asian country at the summer event in the Japanese capital.
Chopra, India’s only hope of winning a medal in athletics, recorded his third best javelin throw of the season at 88.07 meters.
However, the shooting took place in March in the Indian city of Patiala, not in a crowd of his main Olympic competitors.
Under the watchful eye of German coach Uwe Hone, the only javelin thrower to cross the legendary 100-meter hurdles, Neeraj came to Europe to compete in a number of events and recently won in Sweden. Sent a distance of 80.96 meters, which is far from the best mark of the year …
As the former world number one and runner-up in the 65kg bout for Tokyo had trained in Russia, the situation in Punia – the biggest Indian confidence in the mattresses – is worrying when Ali Alive suffered a knee injury from the competition. Moscow.
He has 42 days to recover from what he described as a minor ailment, but he is waiting for the crucial 48-hour deadline to be fulfilled and for the scan to rule out tendon tear.
Dual planetary brown and second in Budapest 2018, Punia is currently one of the best fighters in the world in his category.
